Question by I~LOVE~BATMAN: looking for a recipe for potatoes to go with ribs cooked with Chianti..?
one ingredient in my rib recipe is chianti, and im trying to find a recipe for potatoes to go with it. im thinking of using my slow cooker for the potatoes, but i cant think of how to season them. (i thought of pouring beef broth over the potatoes and adding onion soup for flavor along with some chopped up onions and garlic, but i dont think it will go nicely with the ribs) im trying to make an elegant italian meal for my husband’s grandfather and he knows good italian food (he spent 3 years in italy! lol)

ill take any suggestions you may have.

thanks in advance and have a great day!

Answer by nlkb_82
14 or 15 large red potatoes (about 5 pounds)
Salt and pepper
1/2 cup chopped fresh parsley leaves
1/2 cup chopped green onions
3 large cloves garlic, thinly sliced
1 heaping teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
1 scant tablespoon sugar
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 cup olive oil
1/2 cup tarragon vinegar

Place potatoes in a large pot and cover with water. Bring to a boil, generously salt the water, and boil the potatoes until tender, approximately 30 to 40 minutes. Drain and let stand until cool enough to handle. Peel potatoes, if desired, and cut into 1-inch chunks. Place cut potatoes in a large bowl. Sprinkle parsley and green onions over potatoes. Make the sauce by mixing the rest of the ingredients together in another bowl; then pour sauce over the potatoes. Stir well. Let stand all day, or at least for 4 hours, stirring every hour. Do not refrigerate. Serve at room temperature.
